Another Favorite Fabric Designer

Last fall I was obsessed with the Gobble Gobble line.  It was adorable and didn’t scream THANKSGIVING!!!  It is a great fall line with strong colors and details with the option of traditional fall decor.  Thank you Sandy Gervais

Well, she did not disappoint again this year.  For your Thanksgiving feast you can incorporate her line Awesome into your holiday buffet.  It is very similar to Gobble Gobble with a few tweaks for a fresh updated look.  Considering I bought all the of the Gobble Gobble charm packs I could, I expect to do the same with Awesome.  Fat Quarter Shop, can you run a special on them?? 

Ring in the Holiday season with the blend of Adoring fabrics.  I love that Sandy took traditional red and green and added in cream and blues for accents.  The fabrics are not overly Christmas, but suttle enough to be left out slightly after the Holiday has passed.  Too bad I don’t have a dining room table or else this line would be used for a cute tablerunner. 

July is seriously starting this week, leaving only a few months to get the Christmas and Holiday projects complete.  Time to get busy and shopping.  Thanks again Sandy Gervais for creating wonderful lines that could be used outside of the Holiday season.

News Thread 6.24

This week has been a complete whirlwind.  My mom underwent major surgery on Monday and it took longer than anticipated.  We received a diagnosis we didn’t want, but will get through.  After a long day and a few stiff drinks I finally passed out.  We have had nasty storms come through over the last few days.  The woke me up with a wonderful light show at 3:30 am. 

Tuesday was a long day at the hospital visiting Mom all day.  Luckily I could go home and rest.  Sewing mania began after that. 

Everyday this week I have woke up and started sewing.  What a wonderful feeling to be productive early in the am.  Today I even managed to get some stuff on Etsy. 

Lots more to come though, big announcements possibly.  NO BABIES, just other stuff. 

Things I’m working on:

  • Girly quilt as a custom order on Etsy
  • More potholders, starting my Christmas/Holiday versions soon
  • Yo-Yos for holiday gifts, these kept me sane on Monday. 
  • Groovy flower quilt for Etsy.  Stash buster!! 

Have a great creative week.  Check back next week for some news, hopefully!

News Thread 6.14

I usually do my News Thread toward the middle of the week, but I figured I’d do it early this week.  It’s only Monday but there is lots going on.

My Etsy shop had two sales this weekend.  I am really happy about that.  Good thing I spent some time yesterday finishing some new items to list.  My shop looks a little empty now.  Four new sets of potholders and quilt coming up hopefully this evening.  Good thing I can sew at work.

I’ve pulled out the Holiday fabric to see what I can create.  Pretty sure that I need to get started on the Holiday projects now.  I’m looking at cute little tree I designed while at work last week.  Plus I have some ornaments started. 

Things to complete this week:

  • Birdie baby quilt
  • Photos for Etsy
  • Listings
  • More cutting and sewing for potholders
  • Cut and start new baby quilt

I’m hoping for good weather in the evenings so I can take decent photos.  I want to share with you what I have been creating.  There have been some nasty storms come through Indiana over the last few days. 

Anyone care to share anything creative they are working on?
